Ghaziabad: A massive fire broke out near Nida Inter College in the Thana Masoori area of Ghaziabad due to a major transformer malfunction. The fire, which was fueled by the sparking wires, resulted in significant damage. Shockingly, even a monkey got caught in the blaze, as depicted in the accompanying image. The photograph vividly captures the intensity of the fire and highlights the apparent negligence of electricity personnel.
Previous Complaints Ignored: In the past, school authorities had brought the issue of exposed and damaged wires to the attention of electricity workers. However, despite their prior knowledge and complaints about the vulnerable wires, no concrete action was taken to rectify the situation or enhance safety measures.
